Presented by Michigan Festival of Sacred Music at Online/Virtual Space

Join Teiku – the ensemble of Josh Harlow (piano), Jonathan Taylor (percussion), Peter Formanek (woodwinds) and Will McEvoy (bass) – as they perform their experimental jazz improvisation on ancestral Jewish melodies.

Filmed on location at the First Baptist Church in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the concert will livestream on Saturday, Saturday at 8:00 PM Eastern (7:00 Central) as part of the Experimental Sound Studio's "The Quarantine Concert" series.

The performance will feature the church's Fazioli 9'2" concert grand piano – the first Fazioli piano in Michigan and the first in a church setting in the United States.

"Teiku presents a whole different spin on Passover songs. Inventive and creative, the highly skilled quartet takes the familiar to a whole other realm."

— Jeff Remz, Publisher and Editor, Country Standard Time

This event is sponsored in part by Congregation of Moses in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Produced by the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music - a nonprofit arts organization in Kalamazoo, Michigan - the Connecting Chords Music Festival events center around the common convictions and threads that draw our community together: the importance of cultural traditions, human dignity, and the increased understanding of various faith traditions.
